What's New in Version 4.1.1
- Fixed user reports regarding playback issues
- Premium users don't hear audio share prompts.
Should be 5 stars, but…
The latest version lost audio prompts for social media sharing – good riddance!
Why are the buttons "Share to Facebook" and "Share to Twitter" still there, especially for those of us who have paid for Premium??
Please stop trying to "improve" the app in ways that are unwelcome distractions. At least Umano should allow for user options, again especially for paid Premium users.
The add and subtract plus and minus signs in circles need to be more contrasty, as they were before. If you want to keep the new design, at least please allow user configuration. Please?
Still this is an amazing app and service that I every day. Most of the readers are great. And Premium is a great deal.
Please add a "share to Pocket" option.
Customizable app, interesting articles, and perfect for people on the go
I gave this app a try on a whim, and I loved it immediately. The content is great, and you can personalize the app, so that you hear articles of interest to you. It's perfect for people on the go, because once you define your interests, you can hit play, and do other things while you listen. Fantastic!
Umano is my cooking companion!
Finally, I can give my eyes a rest and listen to the most interesting and relevant news of the day.
